England play Colombia in the World Cup last 16 on Tuesday 3rd July with a place in the quarter final up for grabs and what looks like a favourable passage to the final. See our betting tips and predictions below.
Colombia will provide a real test for England here and it will be the first real test for England in this tournament. A last minute 2-1 win against Tunisia and 6-1 thrashing of Panama are good results, the 1-0 loss to Belgium can be written off given the changes made and the fact that is was actually better for both sides to lose the match.
If anybody thinks England are going to win this easy they’ve probably got another thing coming. It is very rare that England cruise through matches and Colombia will certainly fancy their chances of progressing. It is strange to see the odds for Colombia to win as big as 16/5 with Unibet. England’s odds are only 23/20 which looks a bit short. The first of our England vs Croatia predictions however, is for England to win and both teams to score. They will not make things easy and might need another late winner. The odds for this are 5/1 with Betfair where you get a £100 free bet using this sign-up link.
England fired eight goals in their first two matches and Harry Kane got five of those, he’s currently the top goalscorer at the World Cup and with Ronaldo and Costa eliminated, it looks more likely he’ll take the crown. However, for our anytime goalscorer tip we’re looking into the England midfield and betting on Raheem Sterling to get a goal. He hasn’t scored yet but is still getting in goalscoring positions so he’s the second of our Colombia vs England predictions. The odds for Sterling to score are 3/1 with Paddy Power.

The final betting tip for Colombia vs England is going to be from the correct score market and we’re backing another tight England win. Colombia beat Poland 3-0 in an impressive display but lost 2-1 to Japan (down to 10 men) and only managed a 1-0 win against Senegal to qualify, they were not great in the first half of the match. Our score bet to complete the Colombia vs England predictions is England to win 2-1, the odds for this are 10/1 with bet365.
